How to dress for a summer wedding

  • Summer weddings come in different settings. Often outside, daytime and country weddings are more casual than inside, evening and city weddings. Nevertheless a casual wedding doesn't mean that you can show up in your jeans and a shirt. Do dress up! Wear a knee or tea length cocktail gown in soft flowy fabrics. For more formal weddings go for more streamlined dresses. Silk or satin are perfect fabrics for a formal event. Make sure that the dress you're wearing flatters your body shape.
  • Don't wear white or black. Besides that any color is possible but seasonal colors are the best option. Bright sunny colors like peach, coral, yellow or purple are very summer wedding appropriate. If you want to be more neutral wear beige or taupe. A floral dress is also a good option, especially for a garden wedding.
  • Combine your gown with some fashionable open sandals with high heels. If the ceremony or reception takes place on the grass go for wedges.
  • Wear a small elegant bag instead of a large one, this will make you look more sophisticated on a wedding.
  • Keep your accessories simple. Your light and bright summer outfit doesn't need heavy jewelry. Go for a bracelet with some charming earrings of wear instead a elegant necklace but make sure it doesn't compete with the neckline of your gown.
  • Go for a natural (waterproof) makeup look and a soft hairdo, consider going to a professional for your hair and makeup.
  • If the wedding takes place outside consider wearing a hat and don't forget to use sunblock.
  • If you are still confused about what to wear ask other guests or the bride and groom what is expected.
